Why try, if nobody notices?

Comment by MadSheep3 29th november 2016

A nice design with Art Deco touches, tall-ish and narrow-ish it has great architectural quality. It looks like stained-glass panels, screen printed text, stylish enamel jewelry. I love the @ :)

Comment by Aeolien 29th november 2016

I noticed! It’s been in my faves since last week.

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 29th november 2016

@Aeolien Thanks for the feedback! Can't decide on the " & " can You help me?

@meek Wow, I didn't expect it, honestly. Can you tell me how to get to the Top Pick? Thanks in advance.

Comment by MadSheep3 30th november 2016

How about this kind of "&" ?

Comment by Aeolien 30th november 2016

I feel your pain and frustration. Fontstruct used to be a lot more vibrant and friendly place a few years ago. At present we experiencing a cold intermediary period of indifference before things will warm up again.

Nice design that nearly avoided the monotony of parallel strokes. Some of the diagonals are thinner than other strokes - the issue could be remedied by using composite bricks and/or nudging. Letters with pointed top and bottom may need a bit of overshoot. 10/10

I hadn't realised that my comment was not posted :/ Yes, its a bit quiet but we seem to have slow improvments. Even newcomers create exciting fonts now :) I hope they "fall in FontStruct love" like we did  °৴°

Comment by Aeolien 30th november 2016

@Aeolien What about them?

Comment by MadSheep3 1st december 2016

I like the last design from you and Aeolien, it keeps the basic shapes of angles with lines on upright edges. Your second is nice but you have no horizonals in any other central position.

Comment by Scriptoresque 1st december 2016

They are not bad :) but those with the horizontal lines won't fit too well. The right one is good.

I added three more designs for you to look at based on the 'marquise diamond' shape of the original.

Finally decided with the ampersand.

Comment by MadSheep3 2nd december 2016

This looks good :)

Comment by Aeolien 2nd december 2016

Added support for "Basic Cyrillic" to "Akitodos"

Tell me, how well did I do?

Comment by MadSheep3 6th december 2016

At school I learned the Greek and Russian alphabets in art lessons but its long ago :| Your letters look good.  Could you add the € please and re-check the diacritics on a and i ;)

Comment by Aeolien 6th december 2016

Nice shape, the font has my 10-10. Not just a and i need accents, the c needs the circumflex. I can't comment on the Russian because I don't know it.

Comment by La police de caractère 7th december 2016

Interesting design. I would remove the left straight stroke from the &, though, i.e., your original far right design in the image above is more accurate. As for the Cyrillic . . . it looks fine to me. I would make the 'K" the same as the Latin 'K', though. And, if this isn't monospaced, I would widen the Cyrillic 'De', i.e., make it the same as the 'El', but with the base. Also, why are the descenders of 'Scha' and 'Tse' angled? They should mirror 'Dzhe' and 'De', or vice versa.

Comment by TCWhite 7th december 2016

Oops, I meant 'Shcha'.

Comment by TCWhite 7th december 2016

Maybe the angled descenders are based on Russian handwriting forms.

Comment by Houlaiziaa 8th december 2016

Great, there is the € :)

Comment by Aeolien 8th december 2016

I'm enjoying the progress on this one, but the W seems a bit dense to me. It's the only latin letter with three long parallel stalks – too much ink?

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 12th december 2016

Missing accents on some letters.

Comment by brynda1231 12th december 2016

I think that Meek is right, the Ww looks 'squeezed', there isn't much white space. Can you make a Ww where the center vertical ends on your center horizontal guide line (where X and 8 have their cross)

Comment by Aeolien 12th december 2016

@meek @Aeolien Well?

Comment by MadSheep3 13th december 2016

Like my greek alphabet?

Comment by brynda1231 13th december 2016

@brynda1231 Well, almost.

Comment by MadSheep3 13th december 2016
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Akidotos” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 13th december 2016

@meek Thank you very much, honestly.

Comment by MadSheep3 13th december 2016

Congratulations on the TP. You worked a long time and you didn't get discouraged. The font is great, well done. :) You just have to add â, í and î. Yes, that Ww is good :)
